Chef Dennis’ Pineapple Cake

I’m trying really hard to learn to like cooked fruit. So when a neighbor brought me a whole pineapple, I knew a) I wouldn’t be able to eat it all and b) I don’t really love pineapple upside down cake. What’s an alternative?

Thanks to Google I was able to find Ask Chef Dennis… A blog with this fantastic recipe.

Butter + Fresh Pineapple
Ready for the oven…

My only modification was, instead of just powdered sugar, I made a glaze using 2 Tbls of the cooled leftover pineapple juice butter, a squeeze of lemon juice, powdered sugar and just enough milk to thin to the right consistency.

Thanks to Chef Dennis for this great alternative to pineapple upside down cake!

Tastes like summer…
